Cloud CDE

Continuous Delivery as a Service

A Cloud-Based Continuous Delivery Environment
packaged as a Managed Service.

Simply put: Software only delivers value when it is in production.

Your development team should be focused only on developing software. Using a fully automated environment to ensure your software is always in a state where it can be easily deployed. Cloud CDE radically shortens the timeframe for your environment to achieve this state.

Our Continuous Delivery Environment automates the following development tasks:


Routinely merge code into version control, trigger automatic builds and tests and receive instant notification if the build breaks for immediate action.

Unit Tests

Automated tests to detect problems introduced by changes as soon as possible to fix immediately.

Acceptance Tests

Create multiple feedback loops to ensure high quality software gets delivered to users faster.


Fully automated, low risk deployments to all your environments for frequent deployment.

Automation of these routine tasks means your developers reserve their time and focus for the activities that drive your project forward. While you save on expensive DevOps costs and maintenance.


Companies with high-performing IT organizations are twice as likely to exceed their profitability, market share and productivity goals.

Planning and implementing a Continuous Delivery Environment can be a time consuming and challenging effort. Frequently, this is a side project that gets abandoned as other internal priorities take precedence. Unfortunately, the importance of IT productivity and its benefits to an organization are often overlooked.

Unless you have experience building a Continuous Delivery Environment, the process can take a while before all of the details are worked out. Understanding how to deal with the complexities of your environment can be a barrier. This can often dissuade the team members from buying-in as they encounter setbacks from an immature process.

Cloud CDE delivers high value by providing a purpose built, optimized, powerful environment that is ready for seamless integration with your development team and environments. It comes with the experience and services and training you need to quickly evolve your IT capability which will have a major impact on your productivity and organization.


Cloud CDE is the result of 10 years of perfecting the process by our founders

It was born of necessity from our experienced software consulting teams that deliver high quality rapidly to our clients. A big part of our success is a highly optimized CDE and our application of the agile software methodology. After interacting with numerous clients we began to realize that not only was it critical for us to meet our client’s expectations, but just about all of our clients needed this capability for themselves.

To address the need, Third Wave offers a Cloud-Based Continuous Delivery Environment as a Managed Service. Everything you need to get started is delivered, deployed configured and ready for use on day one of your project by our Certified Amazon Web Services Solution Architect. No more hardware, server or maintenance concerns. All for one flat monthly price. 

Your environment is hosted in Amazon Web Service’s Elastic Computing Cloud, the largest and most trusted public cloud provider in the world.

IT Performance is not just about having the right tools, it’s about developing the right culture.

Once you have achieved the automated environment and done the training, the next critical step is having buy-in from all levels of the organization. Otherwise, the team is likely to revert back to the old way of doing things. Often times, books and training are not enough. As anyone who has worked on a high performing team before can tell you, there’s no going back.

Applying the principles of agile software development, Continuous Delivery, code merging, automated builds, pull requests, test driven development, acceptance tests, frequent deployment and all that goes with it is challenging to establish as a permanent standard of excellence. But it’s worth doing because the rewards are so great and the transformation is astonishing and will be felt throughout the organization.

We believe that the best way to learn is by doing. Many clients have taken advantage of our follow on services that augment their staff with our experts or embed their team members on our expert teams for a live company project, to not only bask in the culture but to deliver critical functionality they have been meaning to get to.
